Explanations what are supporting documents for Global Talent Visa

There is no official definition about the supporting documents in Tech Nation Visa Guidelines.

Supporting Documents for Global Talent Visa are pieces of knowledge about you as an applicant, who want to get Exceptional Talent or Exceptional Promise status. Supporting documents must be provided in a document format. However, they can include screenshots, pictures, tables, charts, etc.

Since each success story is different, there is not an appropriate list of evidence to include as supporting documents. For example, two applicants, who are data scientists may have completely different package of supporting documents. However, it is possible to predict some basic evidence, relevant to tech or business route. Hence, this article can be helpful to you.

The Top Question about Supporting Documents

I regularly get questions from Global Talent visa applicants about supporting documents.

I will send only 3 supporting documents (letters from my customers, partners, and the association where I am a member of a board). But I feel that it is not too big number. What is the best number of evidence for Tier 1 Exceptional Talent Visa application? I apply for Exceptional Promise.

The answer to this question is simple – you must do your best to attach as many documents as you can.

Sure, three evidence is not bad at all. But you must re-think your personal and professional performance. Also, please, try to find more people who can give supporting letter for you.

It can be either feedback about your job or any other positive outcome of your activity.

Average Number of Docs

I won’t write you too much theory but share my own details.

In my own visa application, I have done this. I was brainstorming my LinkedIn connections. I was thinking about past University friends and client base from the previous jobs.

As a result, I got an extra two letters with testimonies about myself. These letters say about me as a promising engineer and a person with good leadership skills. Indeed, I participated in numerous volunteering projects.

These people provided supporting letters on headed paper. In fact, the content of each letter was very similar to the Letter of Recommendation.

In total number, I got 6 evidence. Hence, they’ve made a good foundation for statements and plans, which I’ve made in my application. You have to understand the only fact. All your are provided for fact-check. For example, to illustrate your thoughts from the Personal Statement or confirm information in the Letter of Recommendation. They are not separately evaluated.

And 5 – 7 documents is an average number of proofs sent by Global Talent Visa applicants to get Endorsement of the Tech Nation.

Also, I must say about the minimum. The minimal number of supporting documents for Tech Nation Visa is one.

However, I have never met a person who applied just one piece of evidence. I will say even more. I have never met a person who got Endorsement and applied just one document.

At the same time, purely theoretically, it is possible. However, I do not recommend you to do this. If you are not a Nobel-prize recipient, attach up to ten. I know a couple of dozens guys with Global Talent Visa, who attached all ten documents. This is proven way. Demonstrate everything, what you have!
